Interview with Producers Lori Brown Mirabal and Sharon Shepard Levine


Lori Brown Mirabal and Sharon Shepard Levine took a moment to talk about the premiere of their award-winning documentary, "Gabriel's Daughter, The Life and Legacy of Clara Brown," on FOX SOUL


The documentary reflects on the poignant exploration of the life and legacy of freed slave Clara Brown as depicted in the opera, Gabriel’s Daughter, which was performed to sold out audiences at the historic Central City Opera House, in 2003.


"Gabriel's Daughter, The Life and Legacy of Clara Brown" delves deep into the heart of Clara’s journey looking for her long-lost daughter who was sold away from her at auction. Clara walked along-side a wagon-train as a laundress and cook from Kentucky to the gold mines of Colorado, settling in Central City, where she became an entrepreneur. The film sheds light on Clara’s remarkable resilience, unwavering determination, and the impact she left on those around her.


Through intimate interviews, never-before-seen footage, and emotional reenactments, the documentary paints a vivid portrait of Clara’s struggles and triumphs.


Interview starts at 1:15PM EST | 3.22.2024
